Woo Ching White Crane- History, Legend and Philosophy 殘 閃 穿 截 Intro: Boddhidarma (Although I thought this was more Legendary now looking on Wikipedia there are articles suggesting he came to China by boat landing first in Nan Yue (a separate Kingdom that is now Canton. Any way this is too far back for us to have anything to add and we can learn much from other people’s scholarship but it is interesting that our Tibetan Branch and part of our more Han branch although at first having a different look….upon practicing them more, do not appear to be all that different after all) Southern Shaolin P ..read more

Aspiration
Kung Fu Dad

2y ago
 I have been watching adventure movies. But instead of watching them by myself i have been watching them with the family. Which means that I am not as drawn into them and so i am thinking my own htoughts during the movie. I realize that as a child you have all these goals and aspirations of adventures and that most of the aspirations are basically to become train robbers or somehting like that. Or perhaps Kings. And isn't it strange that these two things are pretty much considered the same thing? As long as you are the hero of your story.  In any case, I guess aspiration and view ar ..read more

 I am going to start recording my thoughts everyday. To make an effort to really do it. I have tried this with just writing it down mannually, but I know these pages will be lost. And I am saddened by the fact that I have started to feel as if maybe my thoughts and experiences don't matter. So in a way, my lack of recording is almost like a form of suicide. And so I feel I need to climb back to a mental state that I was in before and make goals for myself that revolve around my life as it is now.  We rented chickens and that has sort of been one of my main daily tasks, watching them ..read more

Standardization
Kung Fu Dad

 I have always been against Standardization. Maybe it is because I always valued diversity and also the environment that I learned Kung Fu in... had a schedule for forms and levels etc. But it was more of a guide. And it was ten years long. And we sort of didn't complete it. It wasn't so much that my Sifu was holding back on us. And I recognize this much more as I teach. Sometimes you can skip ahead... and sometimes you can't. But I want to try to have a standard curriculum that is shorter. Like just basics, walking basics, Luk Lik and then Sup ji. Not to say I am getting rid of the other ..read more

Peach Orchard Park

 I stared out the window from my darkened cave like room into the Peach Orchard in the middle of the City. There were apples and other fruit bearing trees as well. But the Peach Orchard is why the garden part of this housing project was not paved over or built over and was at the founding of this building complex of low income housing and businesses on the edge of Chinatown.      In the mornings there was not really a lot of activity on my window facing side. A person would pass by now and then. Later on the day care centers would release classrooms of children to play amon ..read more

Ideas for writing
Kung Fu Dad

 I can't just write stuff anymore. I need some sort of outline or plan for a cretaive project, that has limits and borders. And I think it has to be short story type stuff. Anything longer and I get lost. I have been toying with the idea of the character "Heruka Chinatown" for a while. I have been toying with many ideas for while and have given up on them but I noticed that my mind will play out these imaginary scenarios whether I will write them down or not.... so I might as well write them down even if it is for my own entertainment.  Okay here is an idea for a place.  Peach ..read more

 Shao likes to do 10 forms by himself for his practice, with me observing, and not so much correcting, but just counting down the forms. I guess I should just be happy enough with this. Maybe when we are the same size, which will be soon, he will be more interested in various sparring drills. Or maybe not. Maybe he doesn't like the sparring stuff because he is out of shape (but so am I) and perhaps it just has to do with fatigue. Anyway, whether it is practical to only do forms or not, a lot of people just do forms. So what's the big deal.  With Dai, it has been difficult teaching hi ..read more
